But what does any of that have to do with your edit.
You informed us that what he said, then you added that line.
What do you mean, how does what you posted conclude you to add on the pushover thing?
"maybe IT was a push over thing"
what was IT?
no my children have told me Sm rules the home, shes a SAHW now SAHM. XH became a push over too her, my kids own words. But she is great to them so whatever, and XH honestly could use a controlling spouse. I was never one to control, he drank, and gambled a lot. Now she has everything in her name, shes primary on the account and she "keeps him in line" her own words.
Suzi is 26, xh is 46. So maybe it was a push over thing?
